Ave Maria (Gounod)
This is Gounod's famous adaption of the Prelude from Bach's "Well Tempered Clavier"; one of my favourite pieces. It requires a lot of control for the softer parts, and I hope to make another, better recording of it soon. Headphones would help me sync. better with the keyboard part (a recording by John Wustman); perhaps I should buy a pair.
